Tell us more?

What's he like? Skilled? Strong? Skater?

We need this dude now.

Excellent skater. Skilled yes. Needs to get stronger, but he's only 19 and has been playing against grown men since he was 17 (maybe 16?)

There's only so many small framed teenagers a team can go with. Riechel's 170lbs and he's never skated on anything but the airplane hanger sized rink. For God's sake let this kid develop and grow without the pressure of the NHL for a few years!

Riechel is what, 18 years old? Let's wait til the kid matures some eh? I mean just because you were a fatty at 18 and pushed 400 pounds...well you know

DUDE....LOL!
I was 6' 3" 245'lbs and I played both ways for the Prosser voc HS football team @18 but that has nothing to do with too many small framed players on a NHL roster. Do you even watch the style of play in the PO'S.......these Lil' dudes would get killed!
